I really can not stand the Mona Lisa painting. She is a bland woman with dead eyes and it is utterly boring. I've never understood the amount of attention it gets.

I actually prefer it to the ''real'' thing. It makes her look a lot younger too :)

I'm not an art critic but I like the Spanish one better, which isn't saying much because I never "got" the whole Mona Lisa thing anyway.
